January's used up products!

This month I made a new challenge segment to encourage myself to use up more of my products.
So far it has been going great for the february products.
But today I wanted to do a post, because I did manage to use up some products in January even without having the actual challenge.
That is why I'm going to do a quick review and share with you my thoughts on this products.

1. Balea Wasserspray - AQUA 
This product has the same effect on the skin as the Evian Mineral Water. The Balea one has also minerals and the only difference that I noticed is that the Balea one is cheaper than the Evian one. I love this product and I can't wait to repurchase it.
Ingredients: aqua, maris sal, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, silica, nitrogen. 

2. Rexona Long lasting protection - Clar pure Crystal
It says that it has an incredible white mark protection and that is a 48h active anti-perspirant and has 0% alcohol.
I love this product so much that this is I think my 4th bottle that I have used up. It doesn't leave any marks on my shirts and it really works for me. Even after a workout the smell is fresh. I am really impressed with this product and I recommend you to try it out.
Ingredients: Butane, Isobutane, Propane, Cyclopentasiloxane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Aluminium Chlorohydrate, Triethyl citrate, Parfum, Dimethiconol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Triethyl Aconitate, Aqua, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal.

3. Essence My skin - Intensively caring cream: For normal to dry skin.
It says that this rich and intensive cream is specially formulated for skin prone to dryness. You can use it in the morning and in the evening as well, after cleansing with Essence My skin products.
I can't list you the ingredients for this product because I don't have the package that came with the cream, but I'm sure you can find that information on their website.
I do recommend you to try this product. It works really well stepping from winter into spring. I find myself using it then mostly. Also I use it when my skin needs a little more moisturizing and it gives the skin a great base for foundation application.

4. Maybelline New York - The Falsies Volum' Exspress Mascara
This is one of my favorite mascaras. I love Maybelline mascaras in general, but the fact that this one has a curved brush it makes me love it even more. I love the application and the volume that it gives to my lashes and because I already have naturally curled lashes it helps me to coat them in the perfect shape.

5. Bourjois 10h Sleep Effect Foundation - for fresh and rested complexion.
I won't go into details about this product here in this post, because I will be soon posting a review on it, since I have used it up. But I will say that this is the second bottle that I have used from this product.

6. Catrice Cosmetics - transparent fixing powder
This powder was from the "Welcome to Las Vegas" collection. It says that it gives a mattified finish and it fixes the make-up. I couldn't agree more. It is a lovely powder. I can't wait to go to the drugstore and repurchase it. Catrice have an amazing selection of products and I recommend you to go check them out. As far as for the ingredients I couldn't read them  because I've used this powder so much that a lot of the information has been erased. 

7. Manhattan -  Wake up concealer
It says : Conceals dark circles and light redness - all while making your tired eyes shine. With light- reflecting - pigments. Simply dab on to conceal. 
It is light-reflecting and a beautiful product to highlight the inner corner and make it brighter or to highlight the bridge of your nose, but for me it didn't work well for concealing my dark circles. I don't know what it was but I used it very rarely for concealing my dark circles. If you're searching for a dark circles concealer I wouldn't recommend this, but if you want something to brighten up your complexion, than this is the perfect product for you. 

8. Catrice Cosmetics - Re-touch Light-Reflecting concealer
It says: Hydrating concealer with light-reflecting pigments. Diminishes shadows, fine lines and signs of fatigue.I am beyond impressed with this product. I did not expect to love it as much as I do. It did an amazing job for me and I am very sad that I used it up very quickly. It is very easy to apply and it has such an amazing finish, it is not flaky under your eyes and you can also use it as I primer over your lids. 

That is all for my january empties.
